Our educational staff has several decades of combined industry experience in a wide variety of settings. We pass our cumulative knowledge on to our students for a most thorough, well-rounded education to prepare you for a fulfilling career in massage therapy. The mission of UTMI is to improve the lives we touch through the development of compassionate, professional, and exceptional Massage Therapists. We are devoted to providing excellent training for our students as well as professional service for our clients.


Raquel graduated from our Therapeutic Massage program in 2014 and began working for UTMI in 2015 and is now our Clinic Manager. She is also one of our Instructors and brings solid experience and professional skills to our UTMI team. She enjoys cooking and being a mom to her 5 children. Julie teaches the body sciences for massage therapy such as Anatomy & Kinesiology, Physiology & Pathology, Nutrition and various bodywork modalities including Techniques of Massage, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shiatsu.


Our Therapeutic Massage Program encompasses 722 hours of practical education. These hours include 150 hours of supervised Clinical Practicum Internship allowing the students to develop their newly acquired skills by working with the general public. Our students graduate with a thorough knowledge, understanding, and solid training in many highly sought-after therapeutic modalities. The student learns to safely, effectively, and ethically apply basic Swedish Massage techniques. This type of massage is widely popular and utilizes techniques designed to relax the muscles.


It was Mary Jo's wish to create a school that was centered on the student's growth as an individual. Part of UTMI's philosophy is to ensure that our students are well prepared to work in any professional environment or open their own private practice. Our qualified instructors are thorough, detailed and dedicated. The classroom experience includes lectures, demonstrations, and students receive hands-on instruction with professional guidance. We offer morning, afternoon, and evening classes through which the entire Therapeutic Massage course can be completed in 9-11 months.
